Volunteers play a crucial role in what we do at The Turnpike. 

Volunteers have the opportunity to gain new skills and insight into the arts and meet new people through a varied and flexible role:

  • Welcoming all visitors to The Turnpike, being present in our project spaces and ensuring visitors have the best possible experience. 

  • Supporting events designed for families and engaging directly with staff, freelance artists and families visiting The Turnpike.*

  • Supporting the production of events, including events, performances and workshops.
